Hi all, Thank you for your letter. In your letter, you have written how to rotate the N E comp to R T. But my problem is how to rotate the R T comp to N E. I did see the help of sac command "rotate", but there is no instruction abut it? So I wrote a letter again.

Hello, I have some SAC files and need az, baz, dist, and gcarc in the headers. The event and station locations are already in the headers and LCALDA = TRUE. With LCALDA=TRUE, I think the az, baz, etc should be automatically calculated and put into the headers, but this is only the case for about half of the data files. Switching LCALDA to false does not change anything, and resetting the LCALDA to true does not fix the problem either. Does anyone have a solution for this? There… [more]

We have just installed sac 101.2 on a linux 64 bit computer running RedHat. The SAC distribution was not a source distribution. We are getting a "Floating point error" when we run the program. I assume that our 64 bit libraries are causing the problem in that SAC is a 32 bit program. How can we fix the problem?

I am trying to compute spectral ratios of between a hefty number of files and I try it like this: read /path_to_files/filenames*.sac fft writesp over read /path_to_other_files/otherfiles*.sac fft writesp over To this point every thing works well and I can even view with plotsp and see what I am doing. I now want to divide filenames by other_files hence get the spectral ratio between them. the * stands for sequential numbers and the number of file is the same in the nominator and … [more]

I am using SAC version 101.2 on intel Mac OS X version 10.5.6, and I am running ppk to pick p waves for several stations at a time. I type ppk p 4 to view four stations at a time, but I can only zoom properly in the first subwindow (at the top of the first four traces plotted). As I scroll through all of the stations to pick them, when I try to zoom, the zoom function zooms in on the wrong portion of the trace. Has anyone else had this problem, and does anyone have any advice? Than… [more]

Hi, I am trying to run an initialization macro as sac starts up. I have created an init.m macro file in the /sac/macro directory and I am able to run it from within sac by executing the following two commands: SETMACRO sac/macro MACRO init.m I tried aliasing sac like this: alias sac='sac sac/macro/init.m' but it doesn't work and I don't think that it should but this is what it says to do in the README file for SAC so I tried. How do I make something run as I call up sac? Thanks Sh… [more]
